Logan – a VIY Volunteer

A young person's perspective

4 March 2024 | All News

 Logan, 16 from Bolton, was NEET on arrival as a volunteer at Deane & Derby Cricket Club.

He desperately wants to work in construction, but hasn’t had the means to find opportunities to do so, including access to technology to begin the search. After gaining a City & Guilds accreditation in Painting & Decorating with us on the project, VIY and local organisation Believe Achieve CIC helped him a free SIM card including data for six months and laptop, to enable him to job search, complete his applications and begin his own career journey. He’s now studying a multi-trade course at Salford College – with these free safety boots gifted by VIY to get him started!
